So basically, even if you're the original contributor and you changed your email address, you won't be able to make changes to old contributions? Since the email address is tied to the log-in system, technically I won't be able to log in as the original contributor since the old email address is non-existent. Did I get that right? Thanks.

Did you change your email address at http://www.archive.org/account/login.changepw.php or did you sign up for a completely new account? If it's a new account, I don't think you can. If it's the same account...I don't see why you wouldn't be able to edit things but I'm not well-versed on how that part works.

Yes, I went through that page and changed the email address (not create a new account). I'm not sure if the changes are immediate (although I noticed the screen name changed immediately), but I was unable to edit old contributions. Do I need to wait a fixed amount of time before the changes become in effect?

I have to admit, you have me stumped...maybe one of the engineers will have an answer. It seems counterintuitive to me but I'm probably missing an intricacy that I'm simply not familiar with.
